2016 Buick Verano Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Premium compact sedan shares a platform with the Chevrolet Cruze
  • Carries over without significant updates for 2016
  • Wi-Fi hotspot capability is standard, via OnStar
The 2016 Buick Verano is an upscale compact sedan that offers more standard features and better materials without a huge jump in price up towards luxury territory.

Its best to picture the Verano as a classed up version of the Chevrolet Cruze, with more elegant styling and a wider feature set. From the outside, the Verano is easily identified as a Buick with its waterfall front grille, portholes (which are up towards the hood instead of the fenders), and liberal use of chrome on the body work. Automatic headlights with daytime running lights come standard, as do 18-inch wheels which fill the fenders nicely.

Under the hood, the Verano’s two engine options carryover. The base engine is a 180-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder but the more exciting option is a 250-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Both come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission standard, while turbo models can also be outfitted with a six-speed manual.

The five-seat Verano also comes in five trim levels: 1SV, Base, Convenience, Leather, and Premium. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, USB port, auxiliary audio input, power windows/locks, and cruise control. The Verano also comes with standard Wi-Fi hot spot capability, powered by a 4G LTE connection. It is run through GM’s OnStar communications technology and comes with a three month/3GB trial, which can be continued via subscription thereafter. Also available are a 7-inch display in the center console, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, leather upholstery, heated/powered front seats, and satellite radio.

Standard safety features include eight airbags, antilock brakes, and electronic stability control. A rearview camera is optional, along with additional safety technology such as forward collision alerts, lane departure warnings, rear parking sensors, and blind spot warnings.
